I am sorry, but you are completly wrong about that being anti-capitalist. Actions like this are capitalism at it's finest; do anything, do anybody to make a buck, and let God sort out the winners and losers.

Simple supply and demand!

Theres a big problem with this thread and its the mixed examples. Gasoline and water are both subsidized in someway by taxpayers. They might as well be considered controlled substances because of the governments involvement in getting them to the market. Ammunition is like any other commercial grade commodity.

Walmart has become a distributor of ammunition by default because they buy so dam much of it. They get a great price for volume and can sell it for less than most small time dealers can. Are they cornering the market? Yeah probably, but they don't control the supply of ammunition any more than they do paper towels. You want away around it? Get with your buddy, find a deal for ammo online, split the cost and stock up.

Its called, supply and demand,,, if nobody buys the ranges marked up prices then they'll be forced to back them down. Other than that get your own supply. Capitalism 101....
